The Rodney district lies within the ancestral
areas of the Ngati Whatua and the Ngatiwai Maori tribes.
Rodney is known for its two distinct
coastlines, spectacular scenery and abundance of recreational activities.
On the east coast, the Hauraki Gulf and
associated safe swimming beaches with shore-based facilities provide incredible
opportunities for water-based activities. The offshore islands provide the
opportunity to view both historic colonial developments as well as the habitat
of endangered birdlife.
The West Coast is known for its wild, unspoilt
beauty, rugged coastline and dramatic scenery, along with the only on-shore
gannet colony at Muriwai. The Kaipara Harbour is rich in history of the past
kauri milling operations. Together they form more 1000 kms of coastline
suitable for a multitude of activities. These coastal opportunities contrast with inland opportunities for visiting
small townships and accessing a diverse range of attractions, shopping, food,
wine and art highlights.
